My buddies (Team reaper) we have tested a few motors on the anal izer. We seemed to have gotton many make motors running good from 1.6amps to 10. So kinda hard to judge. But it is fun to use. We have a log of data motors tested. I have ran my 13.5 in mod 4wd a few times. I have the esc going to non sensored after start up and adding 6 degrees at 8000 to12000 with 49 on the can. With fan temps were only 120. But whatever

I think the stators at M3 x 48mm SHCS and the timing I forget maybe M2.5 x 6mm FHCS?

Can anyone verify?
Correction:

M2.5 x 48mm Socket Heads
M2.5 x 6mm flatheads

Are the type you need don’t ask how I know. Lol

I hear great things about these motors. I can't wait to buy a few. What are people using for a FDR for a 21.5 touring car and for a roll out for 17.5 1/12th?
Thanks

For a 21.5 I'm running a 3.69fdr with timing at 48d, this is on a larger outdoor track. I'd say drop a tooth or two if your running on a smaller track.

I use a similar version and it’s really only good for setting your timing. Unless your willing to spend a few thousand dollars the correct timing is most important info. Some motors are spot on with endbell and internal timing, some aren’t.
I think it’s a worthwhile investment for less than $100. I didn’t realize how some motors internal and external timing was way off. You could have the same 2 17.5’s from same company and timing could be allot different between the two. Also, if you switch between a 12.3 and 12.5, the differences in internal and external timing can be way off like 8 degrees

That's quite an unusual combination. 7.5T is kinda slow for mod TC (especially in blinky mode), while it certainly doesn't fit any stock (blinky) class I've ever heard of either. Do the other guys you're racing with use similar combinations? Otherwise, you will probably find yourself off pace, even with a fitting FDR for that setup. Anyway, personally, I'd probably start at something like... (wow, this is difficult)... 6.5-7.0ish FDR, and then start measuring temps.

LOL. thanks Dirk for the reply. 6.5-7.0 is what i have in mind as well. at my local track 13.5, 10.5, 4.5, 5.5 motors all have about the same fast lap time in mod class (open motor) since the track isn't big enough. my motor is geared 7.6-7.8 right now and I'm trying to find out if i can get around the track faster with blinky set up and 6.5-7.0fdr maybe add just a lil bit turbo timing if needed for the straight. thanks!

Aluminium timing and stator screws should be in by end of the month

I have the 21.5 V15 motor with the 12.5 rotor. I use it for usgt. Is it worth to upgrade to the 1750 12.5 rotor? Is it compatible? Or should I just up my pinion till it temps out at 150ish or buy the v16. Any help is appreciated

what timing are y'all running on the V16 with upgraded 1700 rotor in 2wd buggy? i think i have it around 52. motor is fast. i have it geared low, but i literally can't heat this thing up. highest it's ever been is about 95 degrees. last week i ran it at a cold, outdoor facility and it was coming off around 78 degrees after a full pack of practice. running it indoors last night it was coming off around 88 degrees. again, the motor is fast, but i'm just wondering if i'm leaving some power on the table.

Stay at or under 55* max. It’ll hit a wall and go inefficient beyond that.

52 is decent especially if it’s quick and cool!
I find they start waking up at 48* and above.
